Description

Flora and Nic have been friends for years, for pretty much the whole of history. But now their shared history is ripping them apart. As they destroy their own relationship in the name of self-protection, they reveal what they truly mean to each other, and how they'll fight for what they believe in. Kopfkino return to Edinburgh with The Grand Scheme of Things, a deeply personal show about scapegoating and living through revolutionary times. 'Writing like a firework going off in your face' **** (WhatsOnStage.com, for The Bearpit).

The Feminist Fringe (4/5 stars) 92 days ago

It’s a manifesto that is a bit preachy at times but can be forgiven for being so, thanks to it’s lyrical script and staging. It’s important that in 2019, a show like The Grand Scheme of Things is here in the UK.
